    Royal Enfield's latest flagship model is out, and no it's not a Classic, but the all new Thunderbird 500. But does this retro cruiser have what it takes to bear the Enfield standard high and proud? We spend some long hours in the saddle to find out

    On the cusp of evolution, is what the new Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 is. And in being so, it is also the perfect precursor to things to come from the maker of the legendary Bullet

    Thunderbird 350

    FloksI had been riding this bike since I purchased and it"s good for longer trip especially to the hills, I always enjoy going on this for longer trips and main advantage of this bike is its sitting posture which will reduce your back pain comparing other bikes.It"s extra large fuel tank will give you 650 to 700 kms continuous ride without refueling. Its weight of 190 kgs will give you firm grip even if you will exceed above 100 speed only thing is you have to modify your handle bar a little bit to reduce the vibration but I am ok with it I want to feel like I am riding on a wild bull and make sure your bike is maintained well every 3 months interval. Always know this every bike has pros & cons ,my suggestions to TB 350 Lovers please don"t get carried away by few negative feeds.It"s totally upon you how you will deal with this machine and see how it will respond.Every bike is made for their own purposes and TB-350 is Cruising Bike and definitely it"s not made for sporting.

    Owned and using TB500 since March2016. Average 20kms/day...48000kms approx done. Buying and servicing experiences were good. But the performance of the bike is TERRIBLE. Brand new and within 4 months had to replace the fuel pump(costs Rs.15000 !!!)...fortunately it was covered in the 1year warranty and I was saved. The front mud guard is a joke...its there only for show, but doesnt do what its supposed to... Bike runs over a small water patch and you have water sprayed on both your feet. Imagine the scene in the rainy season...your trouser legs as well as shirt front are covered in muddy spray which doesnt wash off easily....Rear mud-guard also does a good job of spraying the back of the person riding with you... I wonder what kind of donkeys RE have in their design department who think only about looks and appeal, but not a thought given to utility and well being of the rider. Also, within 1st year I had to replace Ignition assembly as the ignition switch shorted out because of rain water entry !!!...lots of other bikes around from different companies...they dont get shorted ignition switches. But TB500 does !!!....replaced fuel gauge (TWICE !)...bcoz it just keeps showing wrong level...after 2nd replacement I gave up bcoz it still shows the wrong levels...,and in the next year the chain sprocket assembly, handle fork cone-set, brake pads (twice),...and about 4months ago, in March2019 the bike just shut off in mid-ride...went dead !!!... RSA technician managed to burn my wiring while checking the fuse box, and there was a battery death due to 2weeks(!!???!!) bike inactivity when I was out for a holiday in May2019, and yesterday morning (6July2019) the same thing like 4months ago happened...bike just went dead in mid-ride. Red ignition switch dead !!!...self-start or kick start doesnt work...currently at service center awaiting problem diagnosis from service advisor.I had TVS Victor GL for 12years until 2016,...she was a gem...never troubled me once for first 7years!!!...just change oil on time and she was good...neither my daughter"s TVS Wego troubled me since 2010. These were cheaper, less powerful, non-premium bikes...but no hassles...and TB500??...2lakhs in 2016 and just look at the headache I brought home !!!I have decided to sell it off asap...just not sure whether to go for another RE model...bcoz their spares quality doesnt seem to be much, considering the amount of replacements I"ve had to make. If you"re thinking of buying TB500 then think 10times, and be ready to shell out a lot for maintenance, not to mention the headache and irritation !!! STAY AWAY !!!
